I had auditioned this fabric months ago then couldn't decide whether to use a fabric border or a painted stretched canvas. I chose to add the fabric border with a green fabric covered in black line drawn leaves.
Then I added thin batting to give it some body and mounted it on a stretched canvas, stapling it on the back.
|Finished at last|
|Can you relate?|
|Finally settled down to rest|
The family visited backyards throughout the summer sleeping all day in trees and prowling all night until neighbours attempted to remove them. The family was broken up and since then have only appeared now and then as singles -both adults and younger ones. Maybe yesterday's visitor was a grown up version of one of those frolicking babies. I guess some people feel that wildlife is a threat to urban life. My philosophy is that we have destroyed so much habitat and food sources that animals have to adapt however they can. I don't encourage them and I put bungee cords on my recycling bin to keep it closed. Otherwise I let them be.
